Demon Slayer is coming to Netflix

Good news for anime enthusiasts. Netflix will broadcast the first season of Demon Slayer, next November.

Animes are popular on Netflix. The genre, in full expansion all over the globe, is having a good time on the N rouge platform. If the firm has several series of the genre in its boxes, original productions, it also makes a few acquisitions here and there to enrich its offer. Recently, the firm added the adventures of Detective Conan to his offer. But this time, it’s a new production (just as iconic) which is preparing to join its catalog. On Twitter, Reed Hastings’ firm announced the upcoming arrival of Demon Slayer, whose first season aired in 2019 around the world.

Since the November, 1st, therefore, the series adapted from the eponymous manga will be made available to all French subscribers. Note however that Netflix does not have exclusivity, the series is also available on Wakanim and Crunchyroll.

As a reminder, the plot follows Tanjirō Kamado in Japan during the 20th century. While he leads a peaceful, albeit modest, life, his family are slaughtered as he descends into town to sell coal. Only Nezuko his little sister survived, but turned into a demon. Tanjirō will therefore begin a long journey to find a remedy allowing him to regain his human form.

If you’ve already watched the first season and are looking forward to meeting the heroes for new adventures, know that it will soon invade our screens. It is not Netflix that will have priority, but platforms specializing in the genre. In April 2022, it will be possible to discover it on Wakanim and Crunchyroll. Next October, it’s the series Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Le Train de l’Infini which will be broadcast, followed in December by The Pleasure District.
